Advocating to Support Michigan Residents 50+

Posted on 11/30/21 by The AARP Bulletin

State lawmakers will return to session Jan. 12, and AARP Michigan is ready to advocate for policies that benefit the state’s older residents. 

Key issues include improving the state’s long-term care system by using onetime federal funds that could expand access to home- and community-based services, as well as improving conditions in nursing homes. 

AARP Michigan will also be advocating for direct-care workforce issues and affordable, accessible high-speed internet service across the state. 

AARP is always in need of citizen advocates to make priorities known to legislators. For more information, contact Andrea Palmer at or call 866-227-7448.
